BLIND GUARDIAN | BAND SET TO RE-RELEASE THREE CLASSIC ALBUMS

WATCH PART TWO IN A DOCUMENTARY SERIES SHOWCASING VINTAGE FOOTAGE + AN INTERVIEW WITH THE GUYS ABOUT THEIR HISTORY

Progressive power metallers BLIND GUARDIAN are currently re-releasing their back catalogue and after releasing four classic titles last week, today they have announced the re-release of three more classic titles. Imaginations From The Other Side, Nightfall In Middle-Earth and A Night At The Opera will be released on November 30th via Nuclear Blast The albums have been remixed and remastered, and are available on 2CD digipack and 2LP gatefold vinyl format, in a variety of limited edition colours.

Singer Hansi Kürsch comments: “All these albums will not only be available as beautiful 2CD-digipak versions but can also be purchased as gatefold vinyl. Since the vinyl versions of our back catalogue have become so rare over the years, people have kept on asking us about re-issues. Now your wish is granted. The CD version will contain two CDs. One will feature an up to date sounding re-mix and the other will contain the original mix. Both sound great! In comparison to the original mixes, our input on the re-mix versions has been far greater, and therefore have been used for the vinyl versions. They sound fresher, richer and more exciting than the original ones and still pay tribute to the original recordings. It is 100% old school BLIND GUARDIAN with a modern twist. What more can you ask for?”

The band has also revealed the second episode in the historical documentary series they are premiering around these re-releases. Hansi Kürsch comments: “If you always wondered how Lucifer’s official successor turned in the mighty Guardian then listen to these six wise men speaking. Enjoy another round of facts, myths and long-forgotten gossip.”
